Google Suspends All Donations to Republicans Who Objected to 2020 Elections
Announcement comes amid Big Tech purge of conservatives
Tech giant Google has announced it will stop all donations to Republican lawmakers who objected to the 2020 presidential election results.
Google spokesperson José Castañeda said:
“Following that review, the NetPAC board has decided that it will not be making any contributions this cycle to any member of Congress who voted against the certification of the election results," she said via The Hill.
The news comes as other Big Tech companies also announced a suspension on donations.
Social media giant Facebook also announced it would suspend any contributions to candidates for the first quarter of 2021.
Meanwhile, Microsoft said it would stop donating to politicians and review suspensions on Republicans that objected to the certification of the 2020 elections.
The final decision will be announced by February 15 after a discussion with its employees, Microsoft said.
Other big tech giants like AT&T, Comcast, and Amazon have also threatened to block donations to Republicans who objected against alleged election fraud during the 2020 elections.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), who objected to Pennsylvania’s certification of electoral votes, accused big tech of creating a “social credit system” to stifle free speech and further their far-left agenda.
It will get worse. The tech titans have already booted dozens of conservatives off social media, and if they have their way, half the House Republican conference will be expelled from Congress.
The corporate titans seem to believe that the only way to get a democracy to their liking is to eliminate all threats to the Democratic Party’s unified control of government.
And if ever our political organizing were impeded by censorship — say, by the big tech giants — we could build our own platforms.
“But the left and the corporations are challenging all of this now," he added.
"Your 'conservative' social platform isn’t worth much when Amazon can shut it down."
"Your vote may still be yours, but if your party is denied the means to effectively organize by corporate monopolies, it’s not going to win."
"Your church, well, you can still attend for now, but go to the wrong church, and you may not have a job in a few years,” he said.
